Dear CFRG,

So far, we have had no proposals for agenda items for CFRG@eurocrypt. Of
course, the chairs can give a short document status update, but it might
be nice to have something more interesting and contentful than that,
especially as we may have many attendees who do not usually go to CFRG
meetings but are curious to see what is going on.

So: if you are coming to Eurocrypt and staying on for Thursday afternoon,
and would like to give a short presentation on a current "live" CFRG
issue, or on a topic you think *should* be live, please contact me asap.
Possible topics might include:

-- PAKEs
-- Password hashing/Argon2
-- ECC - are we done yet?
-- What should CFRG do in the post-quantum space?
-- Crypto in TLS 1.3 - is it secure?
-- AES-GCM-SIV (and beyond)

If there's no interest, then we will, regrettably, cancel this meeting.
(But not abandon the idea of future co-location with relevant conferences.)
